Lagos, located in the Algarve region in southern Portugal, is one of the nicest towns around. It is equally suitable for nature lovers, history buffs, and party animals. Nature lovers are likely to appreciate the town's dramatic coastline with its steep brown, orange, and grey colored cliffs inhabited by wild birds and fragrant plants.
If swimming among the cliffs is not your thing, then you may be attracted by the town's long history, going back more than 2000 years. Lagos flourished into a significant port during During the Age of Discovery when it served as a base for famous sea explorers and tradesmen. Infamously, Lagos also was a major slave market from which African captives were dispersed throughout Europe and shipped to the New World.
Nowadays, Lagos hostels are often full as it is one of the most visited Algarvean towns, particularly by young English-speaking backpackers. While those favoring package holidays head for the neighboring towns of Portimão and Luz, the wilder crowds go for Lagos.
The town center is full of restaurants, hostels, bars, and nightclubs, many owned by the internationals. You are more likely to hear English than Portuguese in the streets of Lagos old town during the summer months. Offices offering various excursions, e.g. dolphin watching, scuba diving courses, car, and motorbike rentals are scattered around the town. You can also ask about activities at your Lagos hostel front desk.
The Lagos nightlife is legendary. One can dance, party, and pub crawl till sunrise the next morning. Many Lagos hostels describe themselves as "party hostels," so you can expect a certain rhythm of life if you decide to book a bed there.
In general, Lagos is an extremely welcoming town for all sorts of independent visitors. Although old enough to shame many serious European cities, Lagos maintains its youthful fun-loving attitude, and, despite all that drinking and partying every single night of the summer, keeps itself fresh and beautiful.

"Rising Cock Youth Hostel is a really great place to stay -- as long as you can get the room you asked for. The owners of this hostel are really nice and wonderful people, which means they let people stay for more nights than they originally planned (and since the hostel is really great, many people want to stay longer). The problem with this is that they don´t take into account overbooking, which means you might not get the room you asked...

Lagos Travel Tips & Suggestions
Lagos is outrageous. I went summer of '06 for two weeks and ended up there for one month. You have to go.
Lagos is amazing. A friend and I were supposed to stay in Lagos for maybe three or four days and ended up staying for the rest of our trip in Portugal. You just don't want to leave because it is tons of fun. The beaches are gorgeous. You can take a boat ride to the grottoes and swim inside the caves. You also have a great nightlife with tons of fun people! So if you are traveling to Lagos, make sure it's the last place you're going to visit because you will not want to leave!
This place is amazing. I went for three days and ended up staying for two weeks. Stay at the Rising Cock or the Camel Toe. It’s been a few months since I went and I still think about it every day. Check out Joe’s Garage, it’s the best bar in town. And if you have the time, the booze cruise that is run by Joe’s Garage is a must -- it’s worth every penny.
I went to Lagos in July 2005. The town is fantastic with loads of great bars and restarants. I also went to Casa Rosa, the food is so good and so cheap.
This town is a must for anyone passing thorugh southern Spain or Portugal. The beaches are the most beautiful you'll ever see. The partying is also amazing. Try and come early in the summer or the spring. The crowds will be smaller, the weather warm but not too hot, and prices lower. Try and eat at Casa Rosa's, dirt cheap food, that is SO good. There is also a Prtugese place that serves HUGE servings for a decent price. I can't remember the name but ask a local, they'll hook you up. Also, do a Grotto tour. Definitely worth the 10 euros. The further you walk along the coast, the more deserted and beautiful the beaches become. Be warned, those who come to Lagos do NOT want to leave.
